Hi, has anyone experienced this before? I'm stumped on this one I tried upgrading to the new react/portabletext library and the same issue exists. The really strange thing is it only shows in production build not in dev. https://github.com/sanity-io/block-content-to-react/issues/59

All links look correct in the data both prod and dev but rendering differently.
Note the attached images showing the hover with wrong link in prod vs dev (correct).

Tried changing the link mark in our code to the default example same issue so pretty sure it's not our serializer code.
Feb 11, 2022, 6:44 PM
Any good place to start debugging this in the react portable text lib?
Feb 11, 2022, 6:45 PM
Does react portable text have any logic switching on dev vs prod or is this a gatsby issue? I even tried downgrading gatsby and other libs no luck.
Feb 11, 2022, 6:46 PM
Hmm I removed my serializer link mark completely and it fixed it so I guess it is related to our serializer code. Could it be something with this? I'll try
useMemo

Well this sounds crazy but fixing the nested
div
inside the
a
fixed it! I'll update the gh issue.. might be some side effect with react dom rendering cacheing something if invalid dom nesting 🤷 hopefully this helps someone else later.
